I framed two of my three favourite animal drawings. I did both drawings really quickly. The pencil drawing, I did while sitting in bed. The pen drawing I did during the Inktober Challenge 2017, and while I was doing the drawing, I was deciding to quit the challenge. Producing a drawing a day was taking its toll on me. I haphazardly finished the drawing, not caring anymore because I was quitting and then to my amazement, when I looked at it from a distance, I immediately loved it. (It also inspired me to finish the Inktober Challenge).
People have asked me if I find selling my paintings difficult on an emotional level, aren’t I attached to the paintings? There is one painting in particular that I regret selling, my first emu painting but in general no, I have no problems selling my paintings.
But these two little guys, I am very attached to (and I don’t have any particular fondness for rabbits). I definitely wouldn’t want to sell them. Maybe it is the surprise element of the finished product working out when I wasn’t expecting it to or maybe it’s just their cute little faces. Who couldn’t love this little face!!
Has anyone else ever regretted selling a piece of art work? I would love to hear your story.
